ST JAMES SANTEE ELEMENTARY MIDDLE SCHOOL RECEIVES STEM GRANT FROM TOSHIBA AMERICA FOUNDATION FOR $4,500

McClellanville, SC – St James Santee Elementary Middle School  is pleased to announce it has received a $4,500 STEM grant from the Toshiba America Foundation (TAF). These funds supported the Let’s Build An Arcade project.  

The grant served grades 6th thru 8th.  Using the engineering design process, the scholars created and built their very own arcade.  The project incorporates subjects such as computer science, math, and english. Scholars use their programming skills to create games for the arcade machine, their mathematics skills to help with measurements, and their english skills to help with their final reports.   The completion of this project equated to the entire school being able to enjoy arcade games during PBIS.  

Thank you again Toshiba America Foundation (TAF) for your contribution.

About Toshiba America Foundation (TAF)

Toshiba America Foundation’s grants fund projects designed by individual classroom teachers. This “direct-to-teacher” approach brings immediate results. Teachers are able to change the way they teach Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects because the grant supports equipment for hands-on experiments and inquiry-based approaches to the curriculum. At TAF, we believe that STEM is a lot more fun than just reading a textbook. TAF grants provide teachers with the tools they need to be more effective educators. The grants make the classroom a more exciting place  for both teachers and students.
